Bringing music to the people

Jump to last reply

Last night and this afternoon, a chamber orchestra that I belong to - The Southern Montgomery County Orchestra (somoco.org) played outdoor free concerts at the Silver Spring Civic Center. Somoco is a brand new orchestra created with the goal of promoting classical music and making it accessible to the public. The setting could not have been more informal with people walking by, kids running about, car and bus traffic going past and a restaurant regularly announcing "number xxx, your order is ready" over an outdoor loudspeaker.

The program featured the Strauss Serenade for Winds and Strings, a piece by Delius, and the Dvorak Wind Serenade. We played under a pavilion that provided cover for both musicians and audience (and since it rained last night, that was a good thing) and had chairs and small tables set up. We quickly drew good sized and appreciative audiences for both concerts.

Bottom line - it was FUN. The people seemed to enjoy our efforts - we had a lot of positive comments afterwards, and we had a great time playing in that setting. We are offering another concert (different program) June 11 and 12 in the same place.
